  • Spanning two generations, two clashing cultures and two very different ways of life that crash into each other only to become lovingly intertwined, 'The Namesake' is ultimately about the imminently relevant question: what does it to mean to be an American family?

    Jumping between the equally colorful and vibrant cities of Calcutta and New York, 'The Namesake' is a family drama, about Gangulis, who come to USA from India in order to experience a world of limitless opportunities.

    On the heels of their arranged marriage, Ashoke (Irfan Khan) and Asima (Tabu) jet off from sweltering Calcutta to a wintry New York where they begin their new life together. Virtual strangers to one another and with Ashima now living in a new and very strange land, their relationship quickly takes a turn when Ashima gives birth to a son - Gogol. Life isn't easy for Gogol. As a first generation American teenager, Gogol (Kal Penn) must learn to tread a razor-thin line between his Bengali roots and his American birthright in the search for his own identity. As Gogol attempts to forge his destiny - rejecting his given name, his parents cling to their Bengali traditions. But their paths keep crossing with both comic and painfully revelatory consequences... until Gogol begins to see the links between the world his parents left behind and the new world that lies in front of him.
